    I had a meeting with my son's teacher's and school psychologist, and they recommended I take him to a pediatrician that specializes in ADHD etc to be tested for ADHD. Many of you have might already know I have had my son in special programs since before he was two, and that they had diagnosed him with a sensory perception disorder when all this first started.

    II have read some on it, but not a lot. The whole thing is scary at this point, for one I have no clue how I feel about medication, how to treat it, and even the diagnoses of ADHD. Feedback, recommendations, stories would be great. Thanks.

    How old is your son now? I had not heard of sensory perception disorder so I looked it up and came across this article. It mentions ADHD as commonly found in children with sensory perception disorder.

    Mainly, I think a professional will give better advice but I would be sure to get a few professional opinions and then go with your gut on who is giving you the best solutions.

    I wouldn't be surprised to find there are people posting on this board who live with ADHD.

    I agree, get a couple of opinions. Research it.

    It's a new name for hyperactivity. It's one of those renamed things like senility and Alzheimer's. My nephew has it it, and I think he's taking Prozac.

    The geniuses at the first DOD school my oldest son attended said the same thing and wanted to medicate him. I said no and put him in Montesori and then a Japanese School where he did just fine. If he really couldn't pay attention then how did he catch up to the other kids in a different school and a different language? Schools Adminstartors don't know what they're talking about, that's why.

    Some Kids have what I call an "excess of personality". My son is now a well adjusted young man with a wife and a son, no medication was needed.

    If he's a bit uncontrollable then maybe you should look into adjusting his diet and getting rid of sugar, artificial flavoring, no vaccines, and things like that.
